It’s so pretty, and the combination of chocolate and peppermint always takes me back to my childhood. Of course, you’ll find Peppermint Bark in many of the stores during the holidays, but why pay outrageous prices for something that’s so simple to make?

Peppermint Bark
Instructions
  1. In a double boiler or over very low heat, gently melt the dark chocolate. Don't let the chocolate get too hot, it just just barely melt.
  2. Stir in the peppermint oil. Immediately spread the chocolate into an 8" x 12" oval on parchment paper. Allow the chocolate to set a bit, but not harden completely.
  3. Gently melt the white chocolate in a double boiler or over very low heat. Stir in about half of the crushed peppermint candy. Immediately spread the white chocolate over the dark chocolate.
  4. Sprinkle the remaining peppermint candy on top of the white chocolate layer; press gently.
  5. Allow the Peppermint Bark to cool until hardened; break or cut it into chunks.
Recipe Notes

The intensity of peppermint oil can vary. Start with 3 drops, stir in and taste. Add more oil, if desired.

Place candy canes or hard peppermint candies in a ziptop bag and break/crush with a rolling pin. For best results, place the crushed candy in a colander or sieve to remove the powdered bits. Bigger chunks can be used on top of the Peppermint Bark, while smaller pieces can be stirred into the white chocolate.
